Ballinahinch GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in the parish of Killoscully and Ballinahinch in the north-west of County Tipperary, Ireland. The club plays both Gaelic football and hurling in the North division of Tipperary GAA.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1886, as two separate clubs, Ballinahinch GAA and Killoscully GAA, although there is sources that say Killoscully GAA was in establishment in 1884, the year of the birth of the GAA.

Gaelic football[edit]

Although from the beginning the Ballinahinch club was primarily involved in football, hurling is the main sport played in the club, given that the North division is dominated by hurling. [2]
